When I have leftovers, I love to recreate something different with them. I feel like I am just wasting a meal if I just eat the same thing I ate the night before. Does that make sense? Anyway, thats what I did with this Greek Pasta Salad. I decided I wanted pasta, but not just pasta like I had the night before . But maybe cold pasta salad because spring is in the air? And what goes well with Sun-dried Tomato and Artichoke pesto? Feta does. So do green olives, and red onions, and tomatoes, and red pepper, and even more (un-pureed) artichokes. So I tossed together a Greek Pasta Salad...
I do not have a great camera, obviously, but sometimes I just like to play around. Food makes a spectacular muse.
